Served on draft at Engine 15 Brewery in Jacksonville, FL. Golden orange in color, one of the lightest colored pumpkin beers I have seen. Nice, foamy head as well. Aroma is slightly seasonal but certainly isn't overwhelming. Cinnamon, all spice, cloves, nutmeg. Graham cracker and fresh bread as well. Flavor is really nice. There is definitely the feeling of a pumpkin beer without being overpowering, yet defined enough as to yield its style. All of the flavors blend well together and are very well balanced. I have had a lot of pumpkin beers, and a lot of them are awful. This one, however, is a solid, well made pumpkin beer that I would drink anytime.

Single finger head on a golden with amber hues body. The pumpkin is very strong in the aroma. I am actually pretty impressed as many of these are light in aroma. The pumpkin follows sweet pumpkin pie as oppose to a fresh pumpkin smell. Once you drink it you know why. Only a handful of pumpkin beers actually have this much pumpkin flavor. The one is very sweet with not too much on the spices side but mostly of pumpkin pie. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This one is good to try but as I drank it it got old fast.
